PostSubject: Do ‘Formulas’ In Wrestling Always Work?   Fri Sep 11, 2015 9:20 am

Geek.com recently posted the latest editorial from Aubrey Sitterson, who in the past has worked as a writer, editor and web producer for WWE.com, the Interactive Marketing Manager for WWE Games at both THQ and 2K, and host of Straight Shoot.

Sitterson’s latest features a look at the “formula” that works in wrestling, including the similarities between John Cena and Sting, as well as the man they both face at WWE Night of Champions, Seth Rollins, being compared to an all-time great heel in Ric Flair. You can read a few excerpts below; click here for the full column.

One of the best parts of WWE’s weekly Raw show this year was John Cena’s open challenge, in which he would defend the US Title against a different challenger every week. Instead of trotting out stars of similar stature — almost all of whom Cena had feuded with in the past — WWE used this opportunity to highlight newer, younger, fresher talent. And Cena used the opportunity to show that he truly could wrestle amazingly, unforgettable matches with absolutely anyone.

Through matches with Cesaro, Neville, Kevin Owens and others, Cena showed that his style was malleable enough to fit with the type of wrestlers beloved by hardcore fans, the ones who had developed their individual styles on the faster, flashier independent scene. Just as importantly, however, he proved that even at 38 years of age, and after 13 years on WWE television, he wasn’t through learning and evolving his craft. Like Sting, Cena might not have originally intended to become a wrestler, but once he made the decision, he went all in, determined to become the best one he could be by every conceivable metric.
